This beach had a nice combination of rocks and sand. Many of the rock formations were very pretty and seemed to be a magnet for climbers. The sandy portion was very popular. Very clear, blue water. Public parking is up the hill, and some of...More

It looks like a nice bar & trattoria but we regret having seafood at Mario & Pinella's. Both are having stomach problems and it is even overpriced.

Lovely small beach with good sand and a stretch of rocks to explore/watch the sunset. Seems fairly clean and there are two cheap restaurants open nearby.

We discovered this cove while driving south from Calasetta. Very scenic with fishing (row) boats. There are flat rocky surfaces where we saw many sunbathers. I'd be weary of swimming due to the number of jellyfish we spotted. There's a very un-Italian looking beach shack/restaurant...More

A soft sandy picturesque bay in a fairly sheltered location. 2 rocky outcrops, which are relatively easy to walk onto to see the view back towards the beach and also flat rocks where you can place a chair or towel and listen to the waves...More

Only a small beach but great for swimming, snorkelling and a pedlo ride. Kayak trips arranged by Giovanni at Marios cafe a must for the adventurous. Great beach for families as a bay with shallow areas and cold drinks and ice cream over the road....More
